Cisco says Arch Rock, based in San Francisco, will allow it to offer a metering infrastructure for IP-based smart utility grids. Arch Rock's products are designed to let utilities connect smart meters and other distributed intelligent devices over a multi-way wireless mesh network.

Arch Rock will become part of Cisco's Smart Grid business unit once the acquisition closes, which Cisco expects before year's end.
